WESTFORD, Mass. and LAS VEGAS -- Sonus Networks, Inc.(NASDAQ:SONS), the market leader in IP communications infrastructure, is helping mobile operators to embrace flat rate pricing plans without the major increases to operating costs usually associated with increased traffic or subscribers. The core infrastructure components offered by Sonus can be integrated to enable operators to retain competitive pricing models through IP-to-IP peering, advanced media services and transcoder-free operation. Sonus Networks is exhibiting these and other wireless solutions at CTIA 2008, Las Vegas, at Booth #3439.

Consumer demand is pushing wireless operators to deliver flat rate pricing, both in the U.S. and across Europe. To remain competitive in a market with downward price pressure, operators face the challenge of reducing and controlling network infrastructure costs. Flat rate plans will inevitably lead to an increase in call volume, which will become costly for carriers who are required to deliver increasing traffic volume to complete calls outside of their wireless network.

"The key to addressing flat rate pricing for carriers lies in the optimization of their current networks. From bandwidth, to routing, to session and border management, carriers need to drive efficiency in both operational and capital expenditures," said Vikram Saksena, chief technology officer, Sonus Networks. "Using the distributed, scalable technology in the Sonus IP infrastructure, carriers can squeeze substantial cost from their networks and provide a flexible foundation to build the services needed to attract new customers and offer new revenue opportunities."

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
